Kenneth Kirschner - June 18, 1995 et al. [tube003]
«New York musician Kenneth Kirschner is known in the scene for his atmospheric electro-acoustic and experimental electronics. He has released with Con-v, Sub Rosa (with Taylor Deupree) and 12k Records truly engaging and excelent works. But this release for test tube leaves the fuzzy electro-acoustics away and gives in to spiraling percussion experimentation.

June 18, 1995 et al. is full of metal-work. Just listen closely and pay attention to all the beautiful details... feel the wood and metal notes articulating together, building up tribal rhythmic structures that appear to go nowhere, leaving the listener behind picking up the pieces and trying to make them fit together.
The apparent cacophony is gently laid on a ambient lo-fi bed, covered with ethereal sci-fi like sound tapestries, reminding us that music is, ultimately, the builder of human dreams. Just let it flow.» - Pedro Leitão

Three engaging. almost trance-inducing, compositions where the focus is on percussion. Track 1 is a ambient drone piece with several layers of rhythms created using what sounds like bells, chimes, and a xylophone (?). It has a slight dissonance that gives it a hint of darkness. Track 2 has a tribal-like atmosphere with wild rhythms using drums and wood. Track 3 is an abstract, mutli-rhythmic collage of percussive sounds. Good and different!
